A – Aroma is straightforward, cooked agave, limestone, olive, brine, lemongrass, anise, ginger, allspice, mint, slight citrus. I’m picking up a hint of cocoa.   T – There is a nice alcohol tingle on the tip of my tongue before settling into the cooked agave, black pepper, minerals, some orchard fruit, celery, anise, and mint. F – I enjoyed the finish, very solid blanco. Overall – This is a well-made, quality blanco; a solid example of the expression.

This was my favorite out of a blind tasting of the top 10 additive-free blancos. I've had the regular Blanco from them before and it was meh. But this was incredible. N- unique nose out of all the samples. Cedar, wet pavement, moist soil, mint T- is that oak? earthy agave, and just tastes dusty but in a good way (I bet you've never heard that description before), bell pepper MF- oily F- Medium and balanced finish

Smells of grass, mint, pepper, a bit of alcohol. Fairly straightforward. A bold flavor! Savory, meaty notes like roasted mushroom mixed with limestone. A long and hot finish. Very interesting Blanco, but not my style.

Nice agave and floral notes on the nose. More of the same flavors with some pepper and slight citrus added in. It feels a bit thin in the mouth but has a nice lasting tingle. 84 Just got to try an older bottle in the blue tin and angled bottle style. Cooked agave sweetness! Bottle is (at least 10 years?) and still has great legs and tastes delicious. Edition# OKD23-B, Lot H201032, Bottle #807. 88

vegetal agave on the nose. Very oily. pallet is a bit muted but easy to drink. Finish is a bit angry, definitely gave me some tongue numbing but in a nice way saying hey, I'm here

This has a similar nose to #4 with some smoke though not as acrid acrid. A little thin this has some slight sweetness and a good vegetal presence as in yams or similar root vegetables. Finishes with some roast pepper and grill notes.

The Orendain brothers did a great job with this tequila. It’s different, and that’s a good thing, for me. It’s highly vegetal and mineraly. And the finish is long. It has raw and cooked agave and pepper at the front with a pronounced anise flavor that dominates the middle with a lavender and peach finish.

Exactly what I’m looking for, agave forward with enough smoothness to make this truly dangerous. Old school style with hot finish, a welcome change from all the sweet tequilas on the market. Too expensive to make cocktails.

38% Mexican product. 2009 tax stamp. Nose: Spicy, tree fruit, agave notes, and wet rocks. Flavor: Almost caramel like agave richness. Anise and mouth filling spiciness, some earthiness. Some pepper bitterness.

Strong unpleasant aroma...too smooth and round in the mouthfeel...would prefer a bit more bite ...

This blanco is really smoky but smooth and just plain delicious. It may not have the complexity of more expensive blancos, but for the money there's no better value. A great everyday sipper.

Arette - Artesanal suave blanco 38º LOT - ? Indistinguishable, the letters were erased, purchased in January 2024. View: slightly yellowish, it could be the bottle, served in a glass no color can be distinguished. Tears are evidently faster to fall than in a higher proof tequila and do not linger. Freshly served: Smell: sweet followed immediately by herbaceousness and then minerality, cooked agave, a little salty perhaps, but it could be the same minerality, cilantro, slight tepache-style fermented pineapple flavor, cardamom. Taste: sweet and mineral, cooked agave, copper, slightly salty and a little spicy. It leaves a pleasant bitter aftertaste that lasts for about 20 seconds. Very pleasant and light flavor, smooth as the label describes. I let it oxygenate for 15 minutes; Aroma: it seems to me that it has not changed much, due to the low alcohol content it does not require opening up as much to express itself. Alcohol may be more present, but it is not aggressive or overwhelming. Taste: the sweetness is much more expressive and at times has tones close to caramel, but without ceasing to be herbal, I distinguish certain citrus notes of lemon, the aftertaste is bitter and mineral. I think it is an excellent price/quality ratio option. I decide to rate it an 86.

Not as bright in aroma as other blancos. Lots of bitterness of flavor on finish. Has some bite.

Nose: distinctly grassy, some mint, vegetal, cooked agave Taste: distinctly earthy, vegetal, has kind of a cement note as well Finish: medium, bittersweet Overall, I found this distinctly earthy and lowland agave. It’s just a very old school tequila that may really scratch the itch if you want something with that profile. I enjoyed this neat but I’d be very curious how it would fare in a margarita. I was lucky and found this on sale for about $35 which I would buy again at that price. For the normal retail price of $52 around here I don’t think I’d get it again.

At $45 bucks it is not a buy for me. This is a mixer at best.

Agave, mint, hay, thyme, and gardenia on the nose with a hint of vanilla and flower petals. Smells complex, airy, and light. Nice oily texture. Flavors of roasted agave, minerals, white pepper and alcohol dominate. Significant initial burn but fades fast to a nice mellow point that lingers for a couple minutes. The texture and aroma are amazing and the flavors are above average.
